Must just have been desktops then, & i know they dont make it as hard as they use too.

I mean my desktop is fairly upgradeable, basics like ram, graphics card, even the psu is a standard atx from what i understand.

But they allways do something to get ya, in this case, the ssd

I have to disagree! There isnt really a SSD standard right now, and the EEE used this form factor first anyway (the shortie 50mm). Unfortunately for us we are stuck with IDE where the Asus has Sata. But I still cant fault Dell that much, they were likely using what the laptop's maker offered (Compal).

Look on the bright side, at least we dont have Mini 12's Now THAT, I agree they fubar'd BIG time. I rank that stupidity right up there with the atx connectored "Non-atx" power supply issues they had with the older desktops....just DUMB!

Just thought I would pass it on that if you go directly to the crucial site 32g ssd is available for $79.99 and free shipping. They also have a good price on 2g memory upgrade for just over $25.
